Prayer for Those I Love

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious father, may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.

                                                             Eph. 1:17-23 (NIV)

  1. I just love that prayer. Blessings to you too...

    Merry Christmas♥

  2. You know, whenever I read this verse, I get overwhelmed by that "incomparably great power." Surely, I don't fully understand it.

  3. Thanks for stopping by Deidra. These are truly powerful words!

  4. One of my former pastors taught me that prayer. Then last week, my current pastor brought up the remembrance of it. So relevant for today.

  5. Wow. Beautiful scripture. A lot to think absorb. Thank you for posting. I needed to read this today.
